After reading the latest leaked info of Mass Effect 4 I wanted to attempt to create something that would fit in its universe as an exercise in composing. The info supposedly came from a survey that was leaked from reddit, it talked about the new protagonist being something called a "pathfinder" so I wanted to create a theme based on that.
I mostly took inspiration from the original game which had a synthetic mixed with orchestral sound, but I wanted my version to be more melodic and make use of "organic" instruments i.e guitars, a rock drum kit and violins.
While I doubt Bioware will be hiring me any time soon it was a fun exercise that I would recommend to others. You basically imagine what it would be like to compose for your favorite video game, movie, tv series or whatever and then put your own spin on it.
